Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili and the Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili perform Franz Schubert’s Rondo in B minor for violin and piano, D 895.

Schubert composed this rondo in 1826 for the twenty-year-old Czech violinist Josef Slavík (1806-1833, who also commissioned Schubert’s Fantasy in C, D 934 in 1827). It was the first piece for violin and piano that Schubert had composed for almost a decade. It was first performed by Slavík with the pianist Carl Maria von Bocklet (30 November 1801 – 15 July 1881) in 1827. Artaria published the score in April 1827 as “Rondo brilliant, Op. 70”. The Rondo is the only one of Schubert’s six violin-piano works to reach print during his lifetime.

The composition comprises a single multi-tempo movement marked Andante – Allegro.
